An analysis of the flow of water from mountain to aqueduct, city to sea. Shot at and around the Eastern Sierra Nevada, Owens Valley, Los Angeles Aqueduct, Los Angeles River and Pacific Ocean. The animation is composed entirely of single frame photography.

Our take

Described by Thom Andersen as an “electronic Rothko,” American landscape documentarian Peter Bo Rappmund has a unique process of “animating” thousands of digital images with neighbouring sounds, which captures the essence of America’s distinct geography.
